Today’s modern enterprises are spoilt for choice with technology options, services and approaches. But in order to improve organizational productivity and development velocity, considering how developer experience plays a key role in these decisions will be a huge driver of their success.

DevEx is becoming increasingly critical for organizations because developers are important for building digital products and services. Organizations require developers to spend more time coding and less time working on infrastructure. Improving developer toolchains is essential for increasing productivity. But where does security sit in all of this?

James Governor, Analyst and Co-Founder of RedMonk and Steve George, COO of Weaveworks (the pioneers for GitOps deployments and infrastructure management) discuss the importance of DX and security in successful organizations today. They focus on how GitOps is enabling DevOps automation and allowing traditional CICD practices to shift further left.
